      so the teams can be pre-determined,
      but the games require a 5k gold fee, to remain anonymous?

    • Yes, the community is not so big and some players are know as very good players. Look to the rankings in the PL or in national leagues. At this guys will be focused by the attacks in the beginning. e.g. come on, let us try to wipe out Xarus first.

      A other point for anonymous games is that personal strains between players will be covered. If you make a NAP with someone you don't know who is the player behind. You make only diplomatic conversations with the nation and the government from the past. The game is going to a little bit more to an RPG.

      I suppose many players will share their ID with people they already know, anyway. Is this in any way disallowed or discouraged?
      No, it's not forbidden. If they are in the same team they maybe can help each other. If they in different team (normally they take the same team, if they are friends) they are maybe to fare away from each other, to make a NAP or something else. (Remember that direkt trade is forbidden.)

      The small chance that the known players are close to each other and use social media for make a coordinate attack to a third player can not be locked out. But this problem we have in all competitions. We only play with players that are gentlemen and have a bit of honor. :thumbsup:

      In what way is score calculated, all individual players of a team will simply recieve the same score in a particular round?
      here from the rules:

      2.6 Points system: At the end of the season, each player receives league points equal to his victory points. These victory points are taken from the World Herald. The winning team receives a bonus of 50% on their victory points earned. The second placed team gets a bonus of 25% on their victory points.

      Example: The player of the Spanish Nation has 460 SP after thirty matchdays and is in the second best team. He thus receives 575 league points. The player of the Egyptian nation after the final 235 points but is in a losing team and thus gets only 235 league points.
      So each player gets his own victory points that he has after 30 days. If he is in the winning team he gets +50% form his own VP. If he is in the second best team he gets a bonus from +25%. Other players that survive the map and not be part of the two best teams gets his VP in League Points (LP) for the competition.

    • Some remarks:



      Diplomacy is allowed and desired with both types. The communication should basically be done within the game and not via other media. (Skype, WhatsApp, etc.) → see 5. honor rule

      This is an honorable incentive, which gets message spying back into the game. However, it is not mentioned again in section 5. I'm also afraid that it will be very hard to enforce, and will be prone to violation. Teams will NO DOUBT accuse other teams of violating it (by no other evidence than rumors) and use it for violating it themselves as well. I'd like to know of the experience with this rule in the German PL; is it enforced there in any way?




      2.6 Points system: At the end of the season, each player receives league points equal to his victory points. These victory points are taken from the World Herald. The winning team receives a bonus of 50% on their victory points earned. The second placed team gets a bonus of 25% on their victory points.

      First use of "season" should be "round" or "map"




      3.5 Exchange of units: Generally no units in the team-league are exchanged, traded or given away, not even with comrades!

      The word "generally" should be omitted here; it suggest that there may be exceptions.




      3.8 Computer opponents: It is not allowed to have / offer the AI right of way or shared card. Exceptions are nations of former players (see 3.3 Inactive).

      "Shared card" should be "shared map"

    • @K.Rokossovski: Thanks for you help!

      I changed the points you have objected. see -> Rules & Standarts
      The honor rules can't control with normal GO methods. So if we have players that not accept the honor rules, we can only talk with him to play honorably. In the last two years we had only one incorrigible player the we have removed from the games.

      Other thing,I hope you are pleased that I put you to the list of supporters of the Dirty Dozen. see Point 6.4. :thumbsup:
